Getting kids to eat their veggies can be tough.  That’s why I’ve teamed up with Produce for Kids — a philanthropic organization that’s dedicated to educating families on the benefits of healthy eating with fresh produce, providing simple meal solutions and raising money for children’s charities.

The abundance of fresh produce this time of the year is incredible, whether from your garden, the local farmer’s market or the grocery store.  Everything from corn, beans, tomatoes, blueberries, carrots, broccoli, peppers…I could go on and on.  All of these bright colors and fresh flavors are so much fun to cook with.

This Three Cheese Garden Veggie Pizza is one of my favorite ways to get my son to eat more veggies.  The crust is made from a healthy pizza dough recipe and it’s topped with a garlic-infused olive oil base.  Then it’s piled with crisp, fresh summer veggies and topped with a liberal layer of cheese – actually it’s more like three cheeses!

The great thing about this pizza is that you can swap any veggies or cheeses that you have on hand.   It’s perfect for family-style entertaining or a special weeknight meal. It’s also a great recipe for the kids to help with!  They can knead the dough, chop the veggies (if they’re old enough) and assemble the pizza.

Produce for Kids is committed to educating families on the benefits of healthy eating and inspiriting parents and children to create nutritious meals together. They’ve partnered with the produce industry and local grocery store retailers to raise funds for children’s nonprofit organizations while educating families about the benefits of healthy eating with fresh produce. The best part (besides fruits and veggies, of course) – ALL funds raised stay local and go to area children’s organizations!

Now, back to the pizza…this  is as fresh as it gets.  But the freshness doesn’t stop there!  You can pair it my Caesar Salad and my Perfect Blueberry Pie for dessert!
